One mother (April) and three children with three different dads.

It's Jake's 16th birthday, but none of the dads show up for it, April's friend Taneshia says that she's too honest and should try and get the dads more involved.

So April makes up a story that she has a boyfriend called Callum, the IT manager at work, and he really gets on well with the kids. In no time at all, the three dads are round getting to know their children again.

Callum states that he has to go to Dublin, much to the relief of the dads, but April states that the whole family are going with him. Richard, Eddie and Sunil try even harder to be the best dads they can be. However, as April spends more time with her pretend boyfriend, she finds herself falling for Callum, and he feels the same towards her.

Richard realises that he shouldn't have abandoned his son Jake, Eddie tells his boyfiend Grainger that he has a daughter Lily, and Sunil's wife Nikshita finds out about his son Ty.

Callum then does ask April if she would really join him in Dublin, the children state that they have just found their dads again and want to stay where they are. April has no choice, so Callum stays as well.moreless
